Cacoethes Scribendi E-Book by Max Barrett CSsR

In his autobiography, Cacoethes Scribendi (the itch to write), Father Max Barrett makes a tongue-in-cheek claim that acclaimed English humourist PG. Wodehouse was adopted into the Barrett family as an additional brother. When his two older brothers introduced him to Wodehouse at 16 years of age, Max became an instant devotee! “It wasn’t the real world, but it was a world that people loved”, he said.

During the 70 years since he took vows, Father Max has written about 15 books and produced many other publications.

Fr Max was associated with the Majellan family magazine for over 50 years and was editor from 1979 to 1985.
